I'm highly considering using 1Password. My current password method is keeping all of my usernames and passwords in a document that I have on an encrypted/hidden partition on my computer. That document is also backed up to securesafe so that I can view it where ever I am. Many of my passwords are currently the same long complicated password that use different user names/emails. This has been working for me, but my wife keeps forgetting her passwords. So I like the idea of being able to have all of our user names and passwords saved in one place and easily accessible. I would most likely only need one account as I don't need to keep any of my passwords hidden from my wife and our only child isn't even 2 yet.
That being said, I've done a lot of reading on your website and in some forums, but I'm still not sure why I would want to pay for the subscription. Syncing using Dropbox sounds fine to me, so the automatic syncing isn't a deal breaker/maker. The other benefits of the subscription don't sound that appealing. Maybe I'm not fully understanding them or not realizing why I need them. Could you help me understand (explain in more depth than the brief explanations listed on your website please) the benefits of the subscription vs the standalone version?
One other question, the browser extensions seem to me like they would impose a security threat, as you can search for whatever password you want. Unless they don't work while the main app is locked. (Same with the IOS version). Thanks in advance for your help and clarification.
